60 Hrs Explanation: 1.1 This section must be utilised to familiarize the candidates with the installations of a typical ship installation power systems,

usage of the power system highlight the interdependencies of the sub-systems. type of power systems adapted & their distribution of power throughout the ship. Concurrently the candidate must be educated about the various installations mentioned in the Details section above. These first sessions are to be on a conceptual level followed by greater detail once the course content topics relevant are covered int eh flow of the course. ( in keeping with the Competence mentioned )


The machinery that is explained is to highlight the following Purpose Usage pattern Technical working Troubleshooting & down-time concerns


The institute must highlight the reason for adoption of Three phase three wires, Insulated Neutral systems on board the merchant vessels & cover following topics: Three phase power systems with & without Insulated neutral Insulation Resistance & continued operation in case of an Earth Fault Power Distribution pattern on modern mercantile vessels Switchboards & feeder panels LDB (Light distribution boards) & Control power. Emergency power installation & Batteries Transitional Lighting systems Electrical Drives such as starter panels including DOL, star-delta, auto-transformer & soft starter. This should be related to Motor Control Centres


Prime Movers including propulsion plant The objective being shipboard familiarization, this module must introduce the candidates to the key components & aids that are responsible in supervision & control of the Main propulsion plant (subsequent modules must provide an insight into the complex interdependency between sub-systems) Alarm monitoring systems ( how inputs register & alarms are raised with inhibit functions) Control panel for the Main propulsion unit ( Remote, Local & Bridge Control overview ) Monitoring parameters & methods (temperatures, pressures, alarms & shutdowns) this could be through the same alarm monitoring system mentioned in a). Limitations & Emergencies

The practicals must definitely include shutdown systems, LO trips, High temperature / Low JCW pressure trips & over speed functions. 1.5 Engine Room Auxiliary Machinery

Though involves a host of machinery but special emphasis on centrifugal purifiers, compressors & boilers must be the mainstay of this section. Boilers should be addressed in this section as a functional unit & the controls aspect of it dealt in later sections. Thus, the sequential functioning of relay based systems & interlocks is to be well addressed in this section. 1.6 Steering Gear Systems

Position control systems & the integration with the Auto-Pilot for a complete understanding of the purpose & utility of the device with concerns ( e.g. Starter panel overload not wired to trips but to alarms in the Engine Room ). This section however must deal only with the starter panels, the unique nature of their design ( no overload trip function ) & the intent of usage. 1.7 Cargo Handling Systems

Based on vessel types a broad functional overview of the equipment that is used to handle cargo systems with due regard to the time frame allotted. For e.g. on oil tankers Inert Gas systems & Ullaging equipment in CCR, Ventilation arrangements Or LPG carriers Re-liquefaction plant & Ullaging systems, Ventilation arrangements etc. Hydrocarbon carriers imposing safety requirements on ships ( e.g. Vapour concentration diagram for oil & other tankers ) 1.8 Deck Machineries

These include mostly fixed equipment that are on deck & not connected with the nature of cargo the vessel is carrying, Thus Winches, Accommodation ladders, Forward house machinery, form a part of this segment Winches must include the interdependency of hydraulic power on the ships power systems & explain the criticality of mooring operations. Gantry cranes & hose handling winches are to be addressed in this section 1.9 Generators

The module must Include engine starting arrangements, safety & interlocks, the fuel systems used, change over fuel systems & shutdowns & monitoring systems. The switchboard details are not be covered in this section as regards the alternator automation. That is covered in a subsequent section. LO , CFW, overspeed, FO leakage shutdowns & engine heat monitoring must be addressed in this section. Note: Alternators should be addressed in competency no.4 1.10 Galley & Hotel Equipment This section is very important & must not be compensated for want of time or other factors. This sections must especially highlight the distribution of three phase low voltage power ( for e.g. 220V 3 ) through the ships LDBs & other arrangements. This msut include Isolation transformers for Galley, earth faults & methods of isolation & identification of the same. The very important aspect of earth faults on the low voltage systems is of critical concern & the need to isolate power supplied to control equipment from LDB systems to be adequately addressed. 1.11 Ship Construction

This is a section that is well documented & references must include the relevant sections as regards installations, electrical sensors, outfitting & Vapour concentration ideologies.1 This section must also cover the ship constructional details as reqgards hull,outfitting & include one session on stability & the concept of a loadicator with reference to tanks, loading & plimsoll line or other method that details the relevant use of loadicators & stability calculation system. The use of on-line Cargo loadicators is a direct abstraction of the same.

Direction control valves o o o 4/2 valve 3/2 valve 5/2 valve

Proportional control valve ( mechanical ) Single & Double acting cylinders Sequence & counterbalance valves Flow control valve ( throttle valve ) Unloading valves Hydraulic power pack with pressure adjusting capability ( not to exceed 15 bar ) Rotameter to detect return flow of oil

Electronics Lab The electronics lab must be capable of demonstrating the following: Power supply DC ( 0~30 V ) as an assembled circuit permitting the inspection & the study of the power supply. Logic Gates trainer Electronic equipments trainer ( facilitating the assembly of components to build & test a circuit ) Oscilloscope Signal generator Circuits for power regulation ( LM 78XX, LM 79XX, IC317, IC723, current regulators )

Circuit boards for conversion of power level. ( for e.g. the output of a microprocessor or microcontroller based device to operate a higher voltage element ) Power supplies ( Variable power supply for usage ) Breadboard & assembly trainers Indication systems ( Loop monitors, LED bargraph or similar, instrumentation amplifiers,) Communication devices ( Level converters / isolators - RS 232/485 converter, PLC or acquisition devices ) Telephone instruments & one EPBAX ( analog or digital ) Computers sufficient for training the candidates ( use of CBT & tutorials ) Study of Digital Circuits ( Gates, registers, flip-flops, etc ) Signal isolation using optocoupler or other galvanic isolation method Sensing systems ( transducers & sensors ) PLC trainer ( the objective is not programming but rather identification of system faults based on information available ) Soldering machines with Verroboards for practice ( components for soldering practice / recommended project ) Measuring Instruments ( DMM, Signal measurement, calibrators etc )

Instrumentation Trainer It is vital that the candidates perform practicals on instrumentation systems. For this purpose it is required that the lab to be fitted with an instrumentation trainer. It is further required that this trainer be not of the commercial lab equipment for engineering colleges but be adapted for Marine applications. Process control trainer of demonstrating at least one of the following three crucial processes in a closed loop control. Level

Temperature Pressure

A process controller that will demonstrate a closed loop with one of the sensing systems mentioned above. The trainer should be capable of demonstrating calibration of the loop & facilitate scaling & other important functions. Pneumatic or electronic controllers are acceptable One type of control valve with positioning system Signal conversion ( standards for signals 4~20mA / 0~10V )
